home fixture against an improving Coventry City outfit represented a tough ask for Michael Beale in his first game as Sunderland head coach on Saturday.

However, the former Rangers boss would not have foreseen a humbling 3-0 defeat at the Stadium of Light, a result that already puts him under pressure at the helm.

Beale is a long-term appointment, yet with it dividing opinion, the Englishman will acknowledge that he needs to instigate a turnaround and fast, particularly when given the chance to make his own signings next month.

Sunderland have only lost four of their most 10 recent fixtures, hardly a disastrous run, but they also do not look like a side who should only sit three points adrift of fifth spot.

Nevertheless, with a triple-header of Hull and out-of-form pair Rotherham United and Preston North End over the Christmas and New Year period, there is an opportunity to put together a run of improved performances and results.

Meanwhile, aside from second-placed Ipswich Town, Hull remain the surprise package of the season as they continue to hold down a spot in the top six.

Liam Rosenior has witnessed his Tigers side lose three of their most recent five fixtures, though, and blow a winning position in their most recent outing.

Hull were 2-1 up at Bristol City and would be sitting in fifth had they maintained it, but two goals in the closing 14 minutes saw them lose out at Ashton Gate.

role.There will be a change at right-back with Niall Huggins suffering what seems to be a long-term injury versus Cardiff, with Jenson Seelt in line to replace him.Rather than handing a start to 18-year-old forward Eliezer Mayenda, Beale could choose to bring Mason Burstow back into the team.
